    Re: Sore nipplesand milk increase questions

    One thing I learned with this last baby, is that if I don't drink water in the morning (something I am not accustomed to doing) than I am low on milk in the late afternoons. Now I keep a water...

    Re: Left side under-producing..

    Yes, Jen, I do need to work more with that sling!

    I've just never owned anything I liked (and I've tried lots of things). Saw the discussion on slings and the links were great. Love the...

    Re: Left side under-producing..

    I have this same problem. Be sure to research this site - found a great article on it here.

    My last child actually refused the left side eventually and I was lopsided,too. I wore vests which hid...

    Re: Adoptive nursing

    A woman I know accomplished this about 20 years ago - we, her friends, were all very impressed/amazed.

    She used a Medela product - a small boxy tippy-cup sized container that hung on a cord around...

    Re: My Frozen Milk Tastes Funny

    My midwife gave me a great handout on this subject from Medela. Couldn't find a duplicate on their site, but the same basic information is there.

    Re: gassy baby

    Burping helps, too. Sometimes I burp in the middle of a feeding if I feel baby has taken in a lot of air. (This helps keep them awake, too, for a nice long feeding that "reaches" the hindmilk.)

    Re: HELP! 10 month old only breastfeeds!

    My oldest dd refused the various things I offered her starting at seven months - I did some research and it was wondrous to realize my breastmilk alone could grow such a chubby, healthy baby. One...

    Here's some comments that seem credible.

    My newborn got a pretty nasty rash and that was a first for me.

    Re: when to try yogurt and other dairy products?

    With this one I'll start at a year.

    I love BROWN COW YOUGURT. (Organic, no growth hormones, etc.) The kind with the CREAM at the top is excellent. I think Stoneybrook just bought them out.

    My #3 baby didn't show an interest in food until she was one. She was easily my chubbiest AND healthiest child. I started offering her tidbits at 7 mos and she made the most comically...

    When do "most women" get their milk after birth? For me, it was typically DAY THREE. With my first-born the nurses encouraged me to let them suppliment and I said NO but agreed to let them give him...
